Freddie Parker has become the second new player to join the new look Lewes side in preparation for the 2021/22 season. The 20 year old attacking midfielder joins us from Cray Wanderers, where he has been a regular name on the scoresheet in recent seasons, including 8 in 14 games in the last, aborted campaign.

Parker started his career with Millwall and has also had a spell with Crystal Palace before returning to Cray Wanderers where he was the named Young Player of the Year in 2019. The midfielder has scored thirty goals in just over 75 games in the Isthmian League.

Rooks boss Tony Russell was delighted to secure Freddie:

"Freddie is one of the best young players in Non-League football for me. He played 14 games last season and still scored 8 times from midfield! I gave him his debut at 16 and every year from that point he has just got better and better so I can't wait to continue shaping his football journey. If he continues to learn and grow as a person and a player he is destined for great things I'm sure of it"

Lewes Chair Stuart Fuller was equally pleased to be able to bring Freddie to the club:

"I saw Freddie play a couple of times last season and was impressed with his strength and link up play. He is a great all-round player and it is hard to believe he is still only 20. We look forward to seeing him in the red and black next season."

Details of the pre-season schedule and further signing news will be released over the next few weeks.
